Getting "hooked" by something
#1
Do you feel or recognize the moment when you are getting "hooked" by something? When you can't stop doing something or thinking about something?

And that "something" can be "anything" Big Grin Social media, job activities, fetish/hobby, shopping, pron/football watching, etc.

Yes.

I feel a battle between the “greedy” impulse to sustain the gratification and the logical realization that there is a danger to allow the activity to continue. There’s a line that you cross when you justify the behavior and consider it as something you can “control”. However, in the back of your mind, you know that the need for the continued gratification has won over the logic, and you feel fine with that...

When you are aware of this phenomena, it becomes interesting to watch yourself, when a "usual" browsing/watching/listening/eating is getting less resistible, and then irresistible Big Grin

The most dangerous sites (in my opinion) are Facebook, Youtube and DevianArt. Their suggestions what to "do" next are very clever. Since I avoid FB for years now, it's mostly YT and DA.

The only program I watch on TV is the Dutch 24x7 news, because it's repetitive and you can leave at any moment.

I don't play games, so that's not an issue.

That leaves tasty food and nuts/peanuts/seeds. Difficult to resist, but nowadays I can get it under control Big Grin

What do you guys usually do, when you notice that you "are being carried away"? Do you feel guilt, but continue? Do you just proceed with what you were doing? Do you stop and switch to something else? Do you make any effort at all? Big Grin

I get bugs in my head as well. But I have found an interesting way to get these bugs out. And it’s somewhat cheap too. When I get these bugs, I grab a new notepad and start writing everything that’s in my head into the notepad.
After about an hour or so, the bug is gone.

One time I got a bug, and I spend a whole day and almost all nite wearing my maids outfit and doing a ton of selfbondage.

Got all hot and sweaty to the point that I almost got dehydrated.
That’s when I started using my note pads before self bondage.

Just my way of dealing with bugs in my head.

This is the ultimate solution! Moreover it's recommended by both psychologists and "esoteric/occult/yoga gurus". Basically, it's one of the reasons I post in the General Hypnosis thread. I need to get it out of my head... (Sorry for that if it becomes too annoying Big Grin )

Oh... I even have a post in the blog about it: https://www.likera.com/blog/wp/archives/69312
